Weekly Chart Report (5/31/2012)

Flying Island Entertainment artist and The Voice contestant Gwen Sebastian recently visited with Billy Kidd of WBEE (L) in Rochester live from the city’s Lilac Festival. Gwen’s new single, “Met Him In a Motel Room,” is at No. 87 on MusicRow’s CountryBreakout Chart this week.

There’s a new No. 1 song at the top of MusicRow’s CountryBreakout Chart, as Eli Young Band’s “Even If It Breaks Your Heart” jumps up from No. 3. Things in the Top 5 could get messy pretty soon—Brantley Gilbert’s “You Don’t Know Her LIke I Do,” Toby Keith’s “Beers Ago,” and Dierks Bentley’s “5-1-5-0” are in positions 3-5 and still adding considerable spins.

New to the top 10 is Gloriana with “(Kissed You) Good Night,” likely getting a push from the group’s recent appearance on the Bachelorette. Moving inside the top 20 is Blake Shelton’s “Over,” which lands at No. 15. Kenny Chesney’s “Come Over” is a rocketship, gaining 606 spins in its third week charting to hit No. 22.

MCA’s Kip Moore stopped by to visit with WGAR/Cleveland this week. (L-R): Keith Abrahms (WGAR GM/OM) and Moore

Shelton’s wife Miranda Lambert recently gave newcomer Rachel Holder a big shout out on Twitter, after hearing her song on one of MusicRow’s reporting stations in Tishomingo, OK. “I heard this song by @RachelHolder called ‘In Your Arms’ on KKAJ. Gave me chills. What a great singer.  3 modulations. :)” said Lambert in the post. “In Your Arms” is currently at No. 17 and still gaining spins. Other new faces in the top 20 include Thomas Rhett’s “Something To Do With My Hands” at No. 13 and Jana Kramer’s “Why Ya Wanna” at No. 14.

Things are a little slower in the second half of the chart, with only three new songs debuting. Big & Rich’s “That’s Why I Pray” leads the bunch at No. 49. Also joining the top 80 this week are Taylor Made’s “Some Things You Never Grow Out Of” at No. 78 and Marty McIntosh’s “Looking For Reasons” at No. 80.
